SANTA BARBARA, CA / ACCESSWIRE / May 29, 2018 / CloudCommerce, Inc. (OTCQB: CLWD), a leading provider of data-driven marketing solutions, today announced it has launched Data Propria, Inc., a data and behavioral science company focused on aligning companies with the right audience, with the right message, and at the right time to produce a measurable behavioral change and increase revenue.
Matt Oczkowski, Data Propria President and leading data and behavioral marketing expert, will lead a team of world-class data scientists, behavioral researchers, and product marketing specialists with decades of experience encouraging and pushing innovation across the marketing industry.
“The introduction of Data Propria is a crucial step in CloudCommerce’s vision of helping clients learn how data can drive behavior as a change agent for the good,” said CloudCommerce CEO Andrew Van Noy. “Matt Oczkowski is exactly the right person to lead a team focused on building tools and developing strategies for clients to connect with their target audiences by better understanding customer behaviors and motivations.”
Mr. Oczkowski has a track record of success working with a variety of Fortune 500 organizations, non-profits, issue advocacy groups and political campaigns. Most notably he ran the team of embedded technical specialists inside President Donald Trump’s campaign that led to the scientific understanding of the eventual outcome of the election.
“We approach everything from a science first perspective – there is no guesswork in what we do,” Oczkowski said. “The days of 1950’s style marketing are dead and the way that we communicate with people along with it. We build products that help allow our clients to gain a greater sense of understanding about their product direction and customer communication while at the same time encouraging the development of lasting relationships on a more human level. These techniques often result in an increased sense of value and a wider footprint within their specific industry.”
Data Propria’s services will be provided as stand-alone offerings, or in conjunction with more comprehensive marketing services provided by other CloudCommerce divisions. Data Propria will serve industries such as automotive/transportation, healthcare, financial, retail, political, sports & entertainment, non-profit, and many others.
Data Propria was formed on February 1, 2018 and is scaling quickly. The firm is based in San Antonio, Texas, and has staff working across five different time zones.
